Research is an integral part of the University and is broadly defined to include studies, investigations, and other scholarly and creative pursuits. Faculty involvement may be on an individual basis or as members of interdisciplinary teams. Many faculty include students in their research activities and are encouraged to do so.

The University's membership in research-oriented organizations compliments and enhances both faculty and student research opportunities. Among the organizations is Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).


Tennessee Tech has 16 residence halls: two halls for men and one hall for women, and 13 co-ed halls, accommodating approximately 2,650 students. Rooms are designed for double occupancy; however, a few single and triple rooms are available. Rooms are furnished to include standard twin beds or loft beds and mattresses, desks, chairs, dressers, telephone, smoke detector, window shades, closets, and a wastebasket. Students may provide their own personal items to make their room more unique and comfortable. Your residence hall room will soon feel more like home after you have added your own personal touches.
